Being somewhat ancient and in the second cohort of the UK vaccination list I have had the first jab today. Well organised, safe and quick.
It may be useful if folks on here could report their progress with the Covid 19 vaccination. In particular it would be interesting to track and compare different areas and countries with this info.
When did you get the initial and second second shot?
Which vaccine was it?
Any side effects?
Have you contracted Covid 19 after being vaccinated?

I have had the initial shot of the Astra Zeneca vaccine today. I will get the booster shot in 3 -12 weeks.

Cheers
Mike

Apologies. The thread title should be "Covid 19 vaccine - report your progress" but the spellchecker has "helped" me and for some reason the edit function is unavailable. maybe the moderators can fix it.

Mike, my parents have had both their vaccinations, the last being a week ago, very efficient. We are hearing that towards the end of the day if a new batch has been opened rather than discard it, it is being offered to any carers/family bringing their elderly in for a jab. Keep safe

'Have no idea if this guy is a quack or not. My chiropractor believes this is legit.

Google/duckduckgo/whatever:

"Dr. Wakefield warns=”This is not a Vax, it is irreversible genetic modification”"

Decide for yourself.

This morning I received my Moderna virus vaccine at the Southern Arizona Veterans Health Service here in Tucson. The procedure was quick and the system was very well planned and organized. There were insulated, heated military tents set up in one of their parking lots and peolple were there to direct you to a place to park and where to walk in. A quick interview and non-contact temperature measurement preceeded a short questionaire. The shot was painless and after a 15 -to- 30 minute period of observation for possible anafalactic reactions, we were permitted to walk out and drive away. I was very impressed with how efficiently it was operated. The folks in New York could learn a valuable lesson from the VA.

I wish Arizona would quickly adopt the Fed recommendation of 65 and older to be vaccinated now! I am on the list via the VA, but it seems like it's taking forever...
 
Watching with interest. Australia has at this stage not started Vaccinating. We are supposedly getting the AstraZeneca inoculation. Local medical profession has reported that its efficacy is only 60% (maybe 65%, don't quote me) and as such is not high enough to statistically provide heard immunity going forward. I presume some other types will be available in the long term.

Easily debunked:-

Myth #2: The vaccine will alter your DNA
A video that misrepresents remarks Gates made about COVID-19 vaccines has convinced some they can change DNA, the molecule that contains a person’s genetic code.
The video appears to confuse DNA with messenger RNA, which is used by the new vaccines to direct cells to create components of the coronavirus, though not the entire thing. Immune cells detect those components and create antibodies that ward off the actual coronavirus should a person be exposed.
DNA and messenger RNA are entirely different molecules.
Thomas Hope, professor of cell and developmental biology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and a COVID-19 vaccine researcher, said “There’s no DNA with (the) vaccines, so there’s no possibility it could alter your DNA”.

When did you get the initial and second second shot? First jab today; 2nd due towards end of March
Which vaccine was it? Pfizer BionTech
Any side effects? Nope (other than a sudden urge to buy Microsoft shares)*
Have you contracted Covid 19 after being vaccinated? Too early to say! :)









*Is it too soon for vaccine-related jokes?

I should have Googled or duckduckgo-ed (!) COVID VACCINE MYTHS instead of the Doc's name.
Using his name didn't turn up anything at all like the above.
Thanks, Eddy. ;-)

Edit: The Mayo Clinic website says virtually the same thing:

Myth: COVID-19 vaccines will alter my DNA.
Fact:
The first COVID-19 vaccines to reach the market are likely to be messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines. According to the CDC, mRNA vaccines work by instructing cells in the body how to make a protein that triggers an immune response. Injecting mRNA into your body will not interact or do anything to the DNA of your cells. Human cells break down and get rid of the mRNA soon after they have finished using the instructions.

Thats what comes from a national coordinated focused plan.VA here is functioning just fine also while the state of Ms has run out of their allotment
 
Both our children work for the ambulance service on the front line, our son received his 1st shot of vaccine on Wednesday no side effects. Our daughter was not able to book a slot as they had all gone by the time she was able to log on.

What annoys them the most are the videos doing the rounds on social media of people showing themselves having fits after having the vaccine, with many comments from viewers about how they will not be having the vaccine having seen the video. Our children have seen enough people having, or faking having fits to know which are genuine and which are not. They and their paramedic friends even share “and on todays episode of I call it buls%$t” videos.

Good on them Nick, I truly believe the vaccine is the way out of this mess.

Now I have a daughter in the Met Police, and her boyfriend is also a “copper”
they have been told they are not considered front line so need to wait for their age time slots!

Ther fire brigade are being treated the same way as the Police.

So are our first responders not ”Front Line”? Should they not be near the front of the queue?
